On the final week of term pupils throughout school took part in a whole host of activities to generate funds for the ‘Rucksack Appeal’. The initiative is aimed to support the homeless, by purchasing rucksacks, sleeping bags and other much needed items.
Forms were competing not only to raise the most money for a deserving cause, but also for house points! There was a competitive buzz around school, with fundraising efforts varying from raffles and cake sales to pupils parting with their pennies to drench their teachers in sponge throwing!
Activities that took place included:
The form who managed to raise the most money for the appeal was……..
9R in Clitherow- They displayed impressive sales skills, selling raffle tickets to win form teacher Mr Walton’s microphone! Congratulations to them and everyone for a fantastic effort.
The house who raised the most was……
Haydock with a total of £568.05, followed by Clitherow at £467.66 and Arrowsmith not far behind with a final total of £439.09.
An impressive £1,713.46 was raised in total, enabling us to purchase 30 rucksacks all filled with toiletries, underwear, socks and sleeping bags. Ruth and Joe will dispatch these items to the homeless.
